Prayer is a recognition that on our own we can achieve nothing, but with God's power we can achieve anything! The Bible says: "Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labour in vain" (Psalm 127:1), but in contrast: "Have faith in God...whatever you ask for in prayer believe that you have received it and it will be yours." (Mark 11:22,24). So if we are to achieve anything as a church it has to be supported by prayer. Yet, through prayer nothing is impossible because for God nothing is impossible.
At St. Luke's prayer is of course an important element to our Sunday services and an essential part of our growth team's meetings, where individual needs can more readily be prayed for. We also list particular prayer needs on our weekly news sheet and there is a weekly prayer meeting in the vestry (7:30, Friday mornings).
